It makes sense from an evolutionary standpoint. They look sexy in passive mode so they can catch anyone off guard, and in combat mode they have to look intimidating and scary so that even the best of fighters is reconsidering flight during the fight. But I read between your lines: You just wanted to see a naked chick.

You, much wisdom, Daniel-san.

No, I have no issue with it whatsoever, unlike the makers of that video. But thanks for caring!

Too bad they couldn't keep her hot throughout the whole fight. Had to go the whole "enemies have to look evil - for the kids - and we're afraid to dismember women because the combination of sex and violence gives us confused feelings" thing.

I don't play games that feel like work. I also avoid grinding and other mind-bogglingly retarded activities of its ilk.

Maybe this is acceptable for children, but not for people who's been exposed to actual, real work.

Brutal Doom is an overmedicated teenager's idea of a cool FPS. Thank god id software had sufficient talent to not create something like this jarring, gimmicky mess.

On my friends system (i5@4ghz, 16GB DDR3, GTX680) the game runs and looks great. Still it has these more or less frequent 'slowdowns'. I can't describe them better, it's not like stutter, its like the game slows down just a fraction and then resumes normal speed a fraction of a second later. They happen every so often, more frequently or rather more noticably while driving, sort of maybe every 5-10 seconds or so. Could this be tied to 'data' streaming and if so would the HDD be the culprit? (He doesn't have an SSD).

That is likely the problem, yes. If he's feeling anal about things, he could try using a custom defragmenter to specifically push the game's folder to the beginning of the drive for faster access...

It could also be an overly fragmented swapfile or a rogue background process, like a shitty antivirus or bloated porn downloader, I mean torrent program...

Given the nature of GTA, there's only one possibility - it streams data as you go.

Just because you have 16GB of RAM, GTA still can't preload all of its content into it (and it would take forever), and it can't guess where you're going in the game, so it can't really utilize the excess memory past a certain engine-required threshold.

All this suggests that there's a high chance that running off SSD would reduce a specific kind of performance issues, i.e. frequent "pausing".

However if the framerate is consistently low, this is a sign of a more general problem, such as an underpowered gaming system or bad driver.

The only thing that significantly reduced any nagging stutter or hitches occasionally that I saw, was disabling the user radio station. (Deleting or moving all the shortcuts out of the user music folder)

Why aren't you running an SSD?

Because SSDs aren't suitable for massive storage yet. One doesn't just put their Steam library on an SSD.

Call me when 2TB+ SSDs become affordable, commonplace, and reliable.

You don't need every game on one drive. Put the most demanding games on the SSD and the rest on your normal drive.

Do you even have 60GB free on your SSD? I don't. And gameS? As in plural? Oh Lawd. Stop pretending this sort of massive file juggling is some kind of convenient solution.

The problem lies with the devs. End of story.

Sean Penn is a crazy left-wing nutcase, but I still enjoy his acting. Or... whenever he did a movie last time... sometime in 2003.

If you limit your entertainment like this, by profiling every single actor/director/etc the only person who gets robbed in the end is you.

It's incredibly impressive that they got (something approaching) this on the Xbox 360 and PS3.

Yes, running at 15fps.

And thus, Jar Jar Abrams rapes another venerable (pre-prequels) franchise. Everyone applauds as the hope dies.

It is inevitable now that Youtube will stop playing around and introduce unblockable ads. I always wondered how they could afford to be so generous.

Unfortunately unblockable ads will be no less obnoxious. Possibly moreso than before.
